  1. BDM 49,309 Liverpool Jan 84 49,357 Other high ones from same period (over 45k) Liverpool Feb 85 48,246 Man Utd Nov 85 48,105 Coventry FA Cup 6th 87 48,005 All figures from Sheffield Wednesday Archive site.
  2. Same here, was in the North Stand for the Swansea game and on the Kop for the Liverpool one. Liverpool only saved their blushes with a dodgy late penalty. Went to the replay too (along with some 14k Owls fans) which was also in awful conditions. That attendance was just marginally bigger than the one for the BDM, but back in those days we got a few games with attendances of that sort of magnitude (Liverpool following season for example got about 48k).
  3. Book just arrived. Going to have a fun few days reading it (assuming the nightmares don't come back)!
  4. Courtesy of Covid, we don't even know if or when this season will finish, let alone the next season starting. If a second wave happens fairly quickly there could be no professional football of any meaningful description for several seasons. Until that situation resolves anything is pointless speculation.
  5. Did we really do anything so different? We played the system and forced our creditors (especially the Co-Op) to take a massive haircut on the basis that the only other alternative was administration (which is a way of forcing creditors to take a massive haircut). Also, the original company has been ring fenced to protect against any possible action following on from the disaster so to all intents and purposes we are a completely different company. Then under DC we have been spending way beyond our means (as far as the rules are concerned). I really don't see such a significant difference in terms of the overall financial approach. Modern football is a thoroughly murky, dirty business and we are just the same as most other clubs out there, in it for ourselves, not the good of the game which is completely broken. It's sad, very sad.
  6. It should be at the local veterinary hospital because the wing is bound to be broken!
  7. Sadly it's MkIII. We did it in 98 with Charterhouse and look where that got us. Will we ever learn?
  8. Hope football doesn't resume either this season or next, then game can be rebooted from scratch.
  9. When the members of the EFL board have got it. Everyone else is expendable.
  10. His claim to fame these days isn't so much tht he played for Sheffield Wednesday rather than Manure tried to sign him!
  11. In my time watching Graham Pugh and Ken Knighton. Their modus operandi seemed to be if it moves kick it, if it doesn't move kick it anyway! Ball or man, made no difference.
  12. I know for a fact that Andy Pearce was on 2k per week basic plus appearance and win bonuses etc. (which basically upped his possible money by 50%) because his contract was sent to me in error on a supporters club issue! That was in 1994 so would imagine all players would have been on similarly structured deals. 15k a week (even including all the bonuses) - no chance.
  13. I have a huge problem with it and with DEH but I am also extremely annoyed at the way Chansiri handled the whole issue. Chansiri's behaviour ever since he took over the club has been a mixture of foolishness, naivety and arrogance, otherwise how do you think we find ourselves in such a mess over continual breaches of the rules, let alone the situation over Hirst? I'm sure Chansiri is well meaning but he is not the right owner for us. He doesn't learn from mistakes and simply won't take proper advice. If thinks don't change quickly he will ruin the club.
